Adobe has released an updated beta version (v3.3, 11/10/05) of their Adobe
Camera Raw plug-in for raw file conversion with a few enhancements. (Compatible
only with Photoshop CS 2 as well as Elements 3.0 and 4.0.) Support for additional
cameras has also been added, including the Canon EOS 5D, EOS 1D Mark II N, Pentax
*ist DL and *ist DS2. A minor fix has also been made to the Adobe DNG converter,
"improved decoding for some camera models". Do note that this is a
beta version, although it appeared to work perfectly in my preliminary tests.
When installing the Camera Raw plug-in, be sure to follow the instructions exactly
as described on the Adobe web site. The download for Mac and Windows is available
at http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/new.jsp.

Adobe Systems Incorporated(Nasdaq:ADBE) has announced that Adobe Photoshop(r)
Lightroom(tm) 1.0 software is now available for pre-order and is expected to
ship in mid-February 2007. Photoshop Lightroom enables professional photographers
to import, manage and present large volumes of digital photographs, helping
photographers spend more time behind the lens and less time at the computer.
With more than 500,000 photographers participating in the public beta program
over the last 12 months, Photoshop Lightroom now includes a wealth of innovative
features that streamline digital photography workflows. Recognizing the photography
community for their efforts, Adobe is offering Photoshop Lightroom at a special
introductory price of US $199 through April 30, 2007 at the Adobe Store. Photoshop
Lightroom will later sell for an estimated street price of US $299.



Photoshop Lightroom includes new functionality added since beta 4.1, with significant
changes to the Library and Develop modules complementing improvements to the
Slideshow, Print and Web components. While in the Library module, new advanced
keywording tools help photographers filter through large collections, and an
improved import dialogue with more flexible file handling allows more choice
when determining file location. The new Key Metadata Browser provides quick
access to key information tags with an improved ranking and rating system that
now incorporates color labels and a pick/reject system that sorts and locates
photographs faster than ever. New to the Develop module, Virtual Copies and
Snapshot tools help present multiple versions of the same image, providing the
most choice to clients without the confusion of saving separate physical versions.
Additional tools added include a Hue, Saturation and Luminance targeted adjustment
tool for precise and intuitive image edits. Clone and Healing features provide
non-destructive edits to eliminate sensor dust across one or many images.



Photoshop Lightroom leverages Adobe Camera Raw technology and supports over
150 native raw file formats, in addition to JPEG and TIFF, bringing raw conversion
into a single workflow experience. The latest camera models supported include
the Nikon D40 and D80 and the Pentax K10D. This support means that photographers
can use Lightroom with even the newest cameras on the market, knowing that the
image files will be recognized today and in the future. Upon import, files can
be converted to the Digital Negative specification (DNG) or renamed and segmented
by folder or date. DNG is an industry-wide initiative to create a universal
file format for solving workflow and archiving issues. It aims to eliminate
barriers to new camera adoption while giving professional photographers the
confidence that their digital body of work is securely archived and will remain
accessible as digital imaging technology evolves.

Photographer and author Mikkel Aaland is the quintessential early adopter, always
one of the first to master new digital photography software--and to wring every
bit of functionality out of it in the process. Shortly after the public beta
release of Adobe (R) Lightroom (TM) software, a digital imaging workflow solution
for professional photographers, he devised the ultimate road test to put Lightroom
through its paces in the field: Adobe Lightroom Adventure 2006.



Aaland invited eleven acclaimed photographers to join him in Iceland, from July
28 to August 5, 2006. This intrepid crew--joined by three top Icelandic photographers--is
shooting by day and using Adobe Lightroom beta to import, select, develop, and
showcase their large volume of digital images each night. Adobe is represented
by four imaging specialists who will both shoot and assist other photographers
as they work with both the Lightroom and Photoshop applications. The journey
and a sampling of the resulting photographs are chronicled in the Lightroom
Adventure blog at http://digitalmedia.oreilly.com/adventure.
And Aaland is capturing the lessons learned in the field for his book on Adobe
Lightroom, to be published by O'Reilly Media in early 2007.



Premium sponsors for the Lightroom Adventure are Adobe, ExpoImaging, the Iceland
Tourist Board, Icelandair, Lowepro, and O'Reilly. Additional sponsors supporting
the event are Epson, Fosshotel, Graystone Travel, Hertz, the Oflun Group, SanDisk,
and SAS Radisson 1919 Hotel.



The photographers joining Aaland in Iceland for the Lightroom Adventure are:

Adobe Systems Incorporated has announced Adobe Photoshop CS2. Available as a stand-alone
software application or as a key component of Adobe Creative Suite2, Photoshop
CS2 integrates a new set of intuitive tools, including an enhanced Spot Healing
Brush, for handling common photographic problems such as blemishes, red-eye, noise,
blurring and lens distortion. Smart Objects allow users to scale and transform
images and vector illustrations without losing image quality -- as well as
create linked duplicates of embedded graphics -- so that a single edit updates
across multiple iterations. Other new tools include Vanishing Point and Image
Warping. Vanishing Point cuts tedious graphic and photo retouching tasks by allowing
users to clone, paint and transform image objects while retaining visual perspective.
Reinventing workflows such as product packaging development, Image Warping makes
it easy to fold, stretch, pull, twist and wrap an image into shape by selecting
an on-demand preset or dragging custom control points.
